OK, after working at Ten Thousand Villages for almost four weeks now, I have become an absolute Fair Trade convert. And, of course, I have to put in a plug for Ten Thousand Villages whose founder–Edna Ruth Byler–is recognized as the Fair Trade movement’s originator.
You, too, can be part of the story. View online: http://www.tenthousandvillages.com
Of course, I can’t help but put Edna Ruth’s story in SWOG blog–after all, she sure sounds like a Strong Woman of Grace. You can read how she got started here: http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/about-history/
And check out their wonderful blog called “Mosaic,” which can be accessed on their site or at: http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/mosaic/categories/fair-trade/
It won’t take you long to see where swog lady is spending her paycheck!!!
